Anssi and (most of) his harem

Anssi and (most of) his harem
I remember when we got our little flock of poultry ( 11 ) few months ago. They were so small and we had no idea how many of them would turn out to be hens and roosters!

Well, now summer is almost gone and lots has happened. There were 5 roosters and 6 hens. We slaughtered ( and frozen) 4 of the roosters some weeks ago, will eat them in the future. It was a hard decision to choose which one of the roosters should stay, because there can be only one for 6 hens. They already started to have small fights to find out who's the strongest. We decided to keep Anssi Kukkonen ( he is named after old Finnish sports reporter: his name means in english Anssi Rooster :-) Anssi seems to have a nice character: kind towards people, but protective enough for his matrons. Besides he is very beautiful too. His colours are traditional.

Here you can see 5 of his matrons, I put their names to the photo. Edit: I couldn't do that anymore, is it not possible to add notes? Anyway the matrons in the photo are Quail, Blacktail, Klaara, Twin and Blueberry( behind Anssi, you can only see her rear.) Names in Finnish are Viiriäinen, Mustapyrstö, Klaara, Kaksonen ja Mustikka.
There's one hen missing from this photo, her name is Toskana ( because she is the same colour as our dog Tosca and "kana" is chicken in Finnish) .
